He stressed that  “Every community in Plateau State deserves government presence in the area of providing quality leadership, provision of key infrastructural development as well as guarantees the security of lives and properties.

Useni told his visiting kinsmen that when he was serving in the military, he was able to provide employment in the federal civil service to many youths from Plateau State, revealing that he provided many communities and institutions with support ranging from construction of roads, provision of equipment to health institutions, rural electrification and building of classroom blocks of many primary and secondary schools in the state.
